2023 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Pablo Picasso’s death and thus places the year under the sign of the celebration of his work in France, Spain and internationally.

To celebrate Picasso’s legacy today is a way to question what this major work for Western modernity represents today. It is to show its living, accessible and current part.The Picasso Celebration 1973-2023 is initiated by the Musée national Picasso-Paris, main lender of the event and coordinator, and Bernard Picasso, grandson of the artist and president of the FABA and the Picasso Museum in Malaga. It is structured around some fifty exhibitions and events to be held in renowned cultural institutions in Europe and North America, which, together, thanks to new interpretations and approaches, will make it possible to review the state of studies and understanding of Picasso’s work.

Through a bi-national Franco-Spanish commission, the French and Spanish governments have decided to work together on this major transnational event, and the commemoration will be punctuated by official celebrations in France and Spain and will end with a major international symposium in the autumn of 2023, at the time of the opening of the Picasso Study Centre in Paris.

It is a “Picasso today” which embodies this Celebration and which lays the foundations for the Musée national Picasso-Paris of tomorrow.
